Tania Shahzadi, paralegal at Minster Law, introduces the multi-track team at Minster Law. 

Our multi-track team deals with our most seriously injured clients – cases where claimants have often suffered life-changing injuries causing long term illnesses or disability.  We also represent the estate of those deceased as a result of an accident.

Most of our cases result from motorcycle accidents but we also deal with claims from pedestrians, cyclists, and people who have had accidents at work.

With around 120 colleagues we have one of the largest if not the largest dedicated serious injury specialist departments within this jurisdiction and multi-track is the biggest team at Minster Law.

There is a broad mix of experience within the team. We have fee earners at grade A, B and C as well as assistant fee earners and paralegals who support the fee earners in their daily work. The lowest value claims we deal with in the multi-track team are between £25,000 – £49,999 which are dealt with by our grade C fee earners.

These teams are managed day-to-day by a team leader as well as a team manager who provides overall support, all headed up by two senior managers.

We also have a separate cost and admin team supporting our colleagues with admin and cost related queries.

A case within the multi-track team can typically run for around 2-3 years during which time fee earners can develop a strong relationship with the client. We don’t just deal with their injuries but perhaps more importantly how the injuries have impacted other aspects of their personal or occupational life.

Aside from the day-to-day commitments, as a team we are very keen to make a difference in our local community by arranging CSR days.  We encourage all our colleagues to complete at least one day a year to help on a chosen project in the local community.

The firm very much supports investing in people and runs internal training programmes for colleagues who are looking to develop and become qualified solicitors and encourages team members to take part in external courses to support their career paths.

We have people on our training programmes for example looking to become a grade C file handler from a paralegal role as well as people on apprenticeships looking to become qualified solicitors.

Our serious injury department is a great team to work in offering plentiful opportunities to progress in the business. You can check out our vacancies via our website.
